In an interdependent world, International Programs believes that it is essential for faculty, students, and staff to have the opportunity to become personally and intellectually familiar with the people, ideas, and customs of other nations.
Such interaction not only promotes a universal perspective and intellectual growth, but also contributes to the cultural and economic well-being of the university, the state, and the nation.

"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving."- Terry Pratchett
